Free Car Mag adore this programme and are jolly glad that it is back for another instalment. It features Vicki Butler Henderson (Fifth Gear, Top Gear) and Alex Riley (The One Show, The Classic Car Show) return to champion the very best cars released from a moment in time. The new series of THE CAR YEARS with eight classic motoring years as Vicki and Alex pick a car each that they think is worthy of being crowned best in year. The new season of The Car Years is on ITV4 at 8pm, Mondays.
The all-important decision of which car wins comes down to an expert panel of three judges made up of well-known and note-worthy automotive commentators. The competition between Vicki and Alex reaches new heights as each result from the judges comes in, putting automotive reputations on the line in this fascinating returning series.
It’s not just the cars that star, as the show travelled to Northern Ireland to put the classic cars through their places on some of the most picturesque driving roads in Europe. From the stunning Antrim coastal roads of Ballygally, Carnlough, Ballintoy and Portrush, through the epic switch-back roads of the Mourne Mountains and Slieve Binnian, the landscape provides an extraordinary backdrop to the stories behind the featured cars.
Vicki Butler Henderson commented, “It’s been an incredible experience bringing The Car Years to Northern Ireland. The roads are terrific and you’re treated to some incredible views and warm welcomes wherever you stop. If you want a cracking road trip holiday, start by exploring this beautiful country.” Alex Riley added, “Northern Ireland provides the most incredible backdrop to the latest series of The Car Years. Driving some of the World’s great cars along the Antrim coast was a thrilling experience and I can’t wait for viewers to see just how amazing they look in this extraordinary landscape.”
